A Post of a Most Personal Nature

If you are a member of the male persuasion, you just might want to skip on over this post.

Seriously. You've been warned, so if you proceed, I hold no responsibility for your take on the nature of this post.

I never (repeat NEVER) thought that I would post about this, but I am so happy with this product that it really seems a shame not to pass along the information. And while it's a little more, um, personal in nature I am so thankful that I have a friend that passed the information along to me.

I am one that has an extremely difficult time during a certain time of the month. I'm going to jump right in and say the 'period' word. There. I said it. And by difficult, I mean it isn't a pretty time and despite the fact that there are ginormous 747-style pads and super-sized tampons, it does little to help. And really, I'm not one for embarrassing situations, but I will tell you that there has been more than one moment in my life where I'd have loved to hide somewhere far, far away.

And years ago I would never have believed that the Diva Cup would be something that I would be interested in much less use.

But oh.my.word it is wonderful, wonderful, wonderful. And I have gone from spending ridiculous amounts of money each month on products to $1 for itty bitty pads. And had no leakage whatsoever during that time of the month.


I won't post all the details here about how to use it (there are detailed instructions that come with the Diva Cup), but I would most highly recommend checking it out and seeing if it is for you and something you might want to use.

And that, dear ladies, is something that works for me. :)

  1. I've read about this before, but I've never tried it. I think it's awesome that you're willing to post about this!

  2. I'm with you!! I just finished my second month with the LadyCup and absolutely love it! I wanted to tell all my friends and family about its wonderfulness, but couldn't quite make myself bring it up...

    I found the forum at menstrualcups.org to be particularly helpful in determining the brand and size for me.

  3. i haven't made the leap yet, but positive experiences like yours make it seem appealing:)

    (love the name mckenna, btw!)

  4. I keep telling myself I'm going to order them and try them, but haven't yet. Thanks for bringing them back to mind!


  5. Great post! I have used this for years and I love it. Like you, my cycles are heavy and hard to manage. This has made it easy. Thanks for talking about it! Lisa~

  6. I have often contemplated ordering one of those. I wanted to hear from a real person instead of the web site testimony though. So.. I will really need to look into getting one now.

  7. I try to use mama pads (cloth), so I was happy to discover the Keeper Moon cup - very similar to the Diva and I love it too! Great post!


Thanks so much for dropping by - I'd love to hear from you! If you'd like a reply, be sure there is an email address linked to your email! :)
